    When are these figures going to be released to retail outlets such as toys r us?

    Loads of My Local Argos stores have already sold out of the new figures 3.75 so when do you think they will be getting re-stocks ???

    I’m not sure what it is but I really like the 12th doctor figure on the right. Perhaps the eyebrows need to be a little thicker or something to help with the resemblance but I love how it reflects Peter Capaldi’s apparent David Bowie element he is bringing to the character.

  • The Twelfth Doctor

    July 27th, 2014 - 10:53pm

    It would be funny if one of the figures from Wave 3B was Steven Moffat with an angry face with 5 leaked scripts accessories *jk 😆

      July 28th, 2014 - 12:33pm

      Mines far away from the body and has a loose arm which has fallen out while filming my FA series!

  • Destroyer of Worlds

    July 27th, 2014 - 10:05pm

    Why is the actual 12th doctor worse than its prototype because it won’t fit with the regenerated 12th doctor.

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 10:06pm

      no idea

      but i cant believe it will actually end up looking like that

    • Warrior Doctor

      July 27th, 2014 - 10:19pm

      I’m still not sure what figure the real one is….

  • The Living Shadow

    July 27th, 2014 - 8:02pm

    I checked on the website and they have 6 figures in stock at my local Argos! That’s where I’ll be tomorrow then!!!! 😀

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 8:14pm


      i checked the 10 nearest stores to me and they only had 2 each

    • The Living Shadow

      July 27th, 2014 - 8:32pm

      Really, maybe it is wrong

    • TheWarDoctor

      July 27th, 2014 - 8:32pm

      my local 10 out of the whole of edinburgh had only 2 in one store out of 10 so i reserved them

    • The Living Shadow

      July 27th, 2014 - 8:39pm

      I would reserve them at my store, but Dr who toys never sell well in my area, so I’m literally the only one who ever gets them!!!


      July 27th, 2014 - 8:58pm

      i had 5 in harrow, but havent been yet

    • Morgan Brown

      July 27th, 2014 - 9:30pm

      so have you guys got or getting the new peter capaldi figure then?

    • Babyface

      Argos near me got 8 this morning! Gonna go tomorrow and get all 4 of them!

    • Morgan brown

      July 28th, 2014 - 9:31am

      Nice might pick some up myself

    • The Living Shadow

      July 28th, 2014 - 5:46pm

      I went to my local Argos. Turns out the website got it totally wrong and they haven’t even been delivered to my store and they’d be there on Saturday. Nice one Argos.

  • TheOncomingStorm

    July 27th, 2014 - 6:44pm

    for some reason, I can’t seem to find any of the new Doctor Who items on the Argos website. After searching ‘Doctor Who’ in the search box, it just comes up with all the old stuff before the new catalogue release.

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 6:46pm

      if you enter the catalogue numbers you can except the Dalek ship for some reason

    • mick

      July 27th, 2014 - 6:50pm

      put in dr who instead of doctor who

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 6:55pm

      well that works

      also pretty bad

    • mick

      July 27th, 2014 - 7:21pm

      I think the argos website was rushed to get it ready and not a lot of thought has gone in to it.

    • 100000BC

      July 27th, 2014 - 7:55pm

      Yes, annoyingly the new stuff only comes up under the search “dr who” rather than “Doctor Who”

  • Donnie

    July 27th, 2014 - 5:46pm

    Really warming to these 3.75″ figures… the Capaldi in full costume looks amazing. I’m just getting a little tired of waiting for Vastra, Jenny and Strax. How many more episodes do they have to do before CO produce figures? They have become an important part of the Doctor’s family (as well as being a spin-off series begging to happen) and really need to be made. Enough with the Daleks and variants already, there’s only so many times you can release the same figure with a slightly different paint job before people get bored and stop buying.

    • Doctor Stu

      July 27th, 2014 - 5:56pm

      I agree I want vastra especially and would love a sontaran. If Strax was released he should be in his sontaran outfit with removable helmet and gun and then I’d by loads

  • the astronaut of death

    July 27th, 2014 - 5:14pm

    booboo is the image of amy pond figure argos are releasing the one we saw at the toy fair or the actual one because it looks similar to the toy fair version

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 5:16pm

      its the toy fair one in the promo images and that just a prototype

      the one in the pictures i have taken is what you will get

  • Charliec3po

    July 27th, 2014 - 5:04pm

    Pardon my asking, but when are you going to update the 3.75 figure checklist?

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 5:07pm

      we have a new one ready, probably next week Luke’s in Glasgow at the minuet

      this list have become difficult as there are no official images of many of the figures

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 5:05pm

      depends how you read it, he is actually on the back of the packets and they are marked A -may be he already exists they just cant send him out yet

      this isn’t the same production as the general one announced a few days ago because the 2 other figures are missing

    • Anonymous

      July 27th, 2014 - 5:07pm

      but it will be coming out end of august with the other figures.

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 5:09pm

      I dont know any more than anyone else you will see it when you see it

  • the astronaut of death

    July 27th, 2014 - 4:49pm

    I know most people prefer the 5 inch figure to the 3.75

    but I am starting to give character credit because slowley but surely these figure are improving the wave 2 zygon figure was an obvious triumph and that was the the first sign of improvement and now we have just got the tenth doctor figure with a very good face sculpt

    I know these figure are not as good as the 5 inch ones

    but I have got to give them credit they are actually putting a lot of good detail on such a small figure

    I hope to see more of this in the next waves

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 4:52pm

      you cant really fault this latest wave for the size and price, i have seem much worse on other ranges

      sadly nothing will stop the bashers and haters


      July 27th, 2014 - 5:00pm

      i think they are good, but its just more chance of getting not top quality, like the first 11th doctor figure was hit or miss, but i couldn’t fault clara or booboo’s amy, cyberman and ten does have likeness

  • RexisnotyourDoctor

    July 27th, 2014 - 3:11pm

    On this occasion I’m willing to give the retailer the benefit of the doubt. Unlike FP or even Toys R Us, Argos aren’t a niche seller and these new figures are just one of thousands of products they sell, in a week where they’ve had a massive update/overhaul of their total inventory. They can’t necessarily be held responsible if they list an item incorrectly because the product manufacter has revised/delayed their product late in the day.

    • Exterminator

      July 27th, 2014 - 3:19pm

      I agree with you there, Argos are just selling Dr Who toys, it’s not their fault that Character Options have supplied them with photos of unavailable prototypes and incomplete selections.

      It’s another example of Character Options lack of communication.

  • 100000BC

    July 27th, 2014 - 2:44pm

    I think that the Capaldi on the right is more likely to be the released figure as the one on the left is based on the already released Capaldi and the coat from the promotional image, suggesting that it is an original prototype.
    Or perhaps, it doesn’t matter either way. Who knows? Who… knows?

  • The Fishmonger

    July 27th, 2014 - 2:39pm

    Are these figures argos exclusives, or are they just getting them first?

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 2:49pm

      just the 1st to get them

  • the astronaut of death

    July 27th, 2014 - 2:22pm

    this is confusing

    argos are showing three varients why 3!

    • Exterminator

      July 27th, 2014 - 2:51pm

      Very confused dot com!

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 2:55pm

      i wonder how many kiddies and parents are travelling to Argos to try to buy something that’s impossible to buy

      lets face it the vast majority of people who buy these figures would have no idea its not actually in the available stock

    • the astronaut of death

      July 27th, 2014 - 2:59pm

      if they are going to show it off in there catologe they should sell it at least

      I know season 8 has not aired yet but it is not like we don’t know what they look like the

    • RexisnotyourDoctor

      July 27th, 2014 - 3:18pm

      The common factor in all these situations is Character themselves, and this seems like yet another example of them being unwilling/incapable of giving customers OR retailers accurate product information until the last minute, at that. Just look at how much confusion was caused by the initial listing for the TOTD figure set. Is it one figure? Two? What, HOW MUCH??!!
      So yes, very frustrating for people who’ve spent the weekend travelling to Argos stores to buy a product that isn’t even available yet, but maybe not really Argos’ fault.

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 3:22pm

      That’s very true, but frustrating for the buyers who aren’t in the know.

      Personally i have a different opinion for various reasons but that’s just down to me

    • Exterminator

      July 27th, 2014 - 3:25pm

      We won’t mention the shambles that was the rare variants with wave 1.

    • The Twelfth Doctor

      July 27th, 2014 - 3:28pm

      The rare variants were a good idea I think. I mean, it made walking into a toy shop exciting, thinking about if you will get a rare figure.

    • the astronaut of death

      July 27th, 2014 - 3:28pm

      another thing that has annoyed me is that they have revealed it and it dose not even come out for another month and a bit

      it is better when they reveal it when they are very close to the release date

    • The Twelfth Doctor

      July 27th, 2014 - 3:31pm

      I agree, the astronaut of death. CO shouldn’t have sent Argos their Doctor Who section of the catalogue without noting that 12 will not be available until a later date.

    • Exterminator

      July 27th, 2014 - 3:41pm

      From a customer relations point of view, the rare variants were a disaster for Character Options. Kids just couldn’t find them.

      Most of the rare figures were removed straight from the boxes by the retailers in the know and ended up on eBay selling for silly money (black dalek sec £250!)

      I was lucky enough to find them all but it was hard work.

    • Clayderman

      July 27th, 2014 - 5:10pm

      For us, it’s probably a simple and straight forward trip to Forbidden Planet as soon as it’s released! lool, or Argos, if there’s no FP…

      Such a shame TESCO doesn’t stock almost anything Doctor Who related anymore, well, not in Birmingham, at least!

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 5:11pm

      they dont where we live, you would think Doctor Who didn’t exist around here

    • the astronaut of death

      July 27th, 2014 - 5:15pm

      why is hard to track down doctor who stuff booboo

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 6:01pm

      depends on where you live

      the superamreks and on-line ordering have put pay to many independent toys shops – Woolworths was a big seller that’s gone as well

    • alexanderop

      July 27th, 2014 - 5:58pm

      Making Capaldi a rare figure would be a terrible idea, for customers that is. The thing would be overpriced to high heaven on the aftermarket simply because it would be a variant of the 12th Doctor himself.
      Also shoppers who go to look for the new DW wave at Argos won’t even get two different figures from what I’ve heard, Argos’ only stocking multiples of Tennant and so on.

    because we have these does anyone think we will get a 5inch Capaldi in series 8 costume

  • Ryan

    July 27th, 2014 - 1:19pm

    Are the two 12th Doctor’s variants? Or is it simply the case that they are two different prototype images of the same figure? And, I’m thinking of going into town to look for these and the Time Zone playsets, do you guys think there’s any point considering how little stock there is?

    • booboo

      July 27th, 2014 - 1:59pm

      actually Argos is showing 3 variants but apparently we are only getting one – i think someone should tell them

      you can check if they have any stock on-line (but not what they have)

    • Ryan

      July 27th, 2014 - 4:31pm

      I’ve just spotted the third variant now. When is Capaldi expected to be out?

    For anyone who got a Genesis Dalek, is the middle of the Eye lens a black circle (like its supposed to be,) or is it the same colour blue as the round thing thats halfway down the eye stalk?

    I only ask as mine has a blue eye and I’m wondering if its factory error/running change/ variant.

    • Drwhofan130

      July 27th, 2014 - 11:34am

      factory error as genesis daleks have a black circle this is the same on both the 5″ & 3.75″ genesis dalek figures

    • The Big Friendly Button

      July 27th, 2014 - 12:41pm

      But then again it also makes it a nice variant.

  • Morgan Brown

    July 27th, 2014 - 10:55am

    why do some prototypes look better then the real ones

    • Doctor Stu

      July 27th, 2014 - 11:19am

      The prototypes don’t have the awkward joints in the arms and usually have a lot of time spent on them in order for them to look good to any potential buyers…because the prototypes are usually just one or two examples of the figure they have the time to go into extreme detail etc: but the actual figures end up with less quality
